Wild Sweet Nibs, Organic Cacao Nibs Lightly Sweetened, Raw, Single-Origin, Gluten-Free, non-GMO Superfood (4 ounce) (Misc.) When I ordered these, I had no clue what they were. My very first taste, I was not real impressed. Then, I had some more and thought "Hmm, these are kind of good...." Let's just say, I had to move them away from myself before I finished the entire bag in one sitting! It's a small bag, so that wouldn't be hard to do. I don't like dark chocolate in general, but I really like these (after that first surprising taste). They are sweet enough to be yummy, but not so much that you feel like you've eaten something really unhealthy. Plus, it tastes like chocolate (and coconut). I can see buying these just to have around to hold off the chocolate cravings that hit. I received this at a discounted price. This is my honest and unbiased review. Trust me, I'd tell you if I didn't like it. I pledge no loyalty to the companies that give me a discount.

Audiosharp AS1128 Metal In Ear Headphones I am letting my 12 year old daughter use this In-Ear Headset after I tried them out for myself for a few days. I found the sound quality to be quite nice. Everything was clear and no static. The earbuds were comfortable as well. However, the real test is the 12 year old. She is pretty hard on headphones. Well, it's been a few weeks now and they are still working great. So, I call this a win! I received these at a discount. This is my honest and unbiased review.

ekSel COOL Oven, Grill & BBQ Gloves, White Woven Aramid with Non-Slip Blue Silicone, One Size, Flexible & Lightweight, 2 Pack (1 Pair) (Kitchen) I really like these gloves. We have a few pair of the silicone gloves that I like ok, but I found that I like these better. These are more comfortable and I think they block the heat better than many of the silicone ones I've used. There is heat protection all the way around your hand, not just on one side, so I like that Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above in exchange for review from Giveaway Service website.

Valdler Women's Feather Fascinator Party Hat With For Dance Tea Party Wedding.This is an adorable little hat! I have a problem with many hats giving me a headache. However, this hat is very lightweight, so I had no problems with that. It is also an open weave design, so it will not over heat you like some hats. The hat itself looks absolutely darling! It is easy to put in your hair with the clip that is attached inside. It stayed on my 12 year old daughter all day while she was running around. We really love this hat and the way it looks!

I had meant to post a picture of my daughter wearing this, but I was running around like crazy today and never got another pictrure! She was wearing this with a Hawaiian dress today, even though it is 30 degrees outside! Kids, you have to love them! http://amzn.to/1LphKZr This floral crown was so much prettier in person that it was in the pictures! We were very pleasantly surprised at this. The flowers are nicely made and look quite realistic. The wreath is nice and full but not overpowering. My daughter is the hat person in this family, so she claimed this as her own. She decided she wanted to change the ribbon in the back to match the outfit she was wearing, and she was able to do that very quickly and easily (with ribbon I had in my stash). The wreath was simply stunning on her. Edit: My daughter just got home from a restaurant where she wore this. I am told that everyone in the restaurant went crazy over this! It was quite a hit!

Magnus Heavy Duty Double Edge Safety Razor Long Handled - 2 Free Double Edge Razor Blades - Your Perfect Shaving Razor I gave this razor to my husband. He is on a razor kick lately and likes trying out all kinds of new ones. He says he likes this one because it has a long handle. It is a nice weight and feels good in your hand. He gets a nice close shave with it. It is nicely made and should last a long time. I received this at a discounted price, this is my honest and unbiased review.

Precision Grooming Set


Precision Grooming Set These just aren't my favorite tweezers. I have had a hard time getting a good grip on things with these. They are not bad if what you are trying to grab is not real tiny. They aren't working well for me for grooming purposes though, which is why I really wanted them. I do like that they come in a nice little case. I will probably throw these in my travel bag. I like the scissors that come with the set, they are nice and sharp and I've used them to cut many different things since receiving this set. I received this at a discount. This is my honest and unbiased review.

Tweez'em Stainless Steel Precision Tweezers for Ingrown Hair, Eyebrow Hair, Facial Hairs - Great for Splinters and Glass Removal - Steel Pointy Ends Meet Perfectly -Tweezers You Buy Once and Love Forever! (Health and Beauty) I'm just not a fan of these. I happened to get a sliver the same day I received these. So, I thought this would be a great opportunity to try these out. I washed and sterilized these the best I could and gave it a go. I quickly realized that even though the splinter I was trying to get out was rather big, these just weren't going to work. The ends are just so tiny that there was not enough surface area on the tweezers to get a good grip on the splinter. After trying for a few minutes, I actually just ended grabbing the splinter with my fingernails and pulling it right out. I've tried them on ingrown hairs a few times and I've had the same results. They just don't work well for me. I received these at a discount. This is my honest and unbiased review.

Legend Organic Premium Organic Matcha


Legend Organic Premium Organic Matcha This is a ceremonial grade matcha, which means that it is better than a culinary grade for just drinking. I find that the ceremonial grade, including this one from Legend Organic is much less bitter than the culinary grade. There is also a quality difference. With this matcha, I actually feel like I have more energy and am more alert. I like to make this with milk, almond or cow. I put the matcha in the milk and then add a bit of sweetener. I prefer honey, because it is natural. This actually tastes quite good. I'm not a big fan of just straight matcha, but if that is your thing, make sure you buy a ceremonial grade, like this one. I received this at a discount. This is my honest and unbiased review. I do not agree to leave a good review for the products I receive free or at a discount like some reviewers do.

Dot&Dot - Baby Stroller Attachable Organizer - Diaper and Bottle Tote Bag - Specially Designed Bag to Attach To Strollers, Walkers and Car Seats to Lighten Your Load While Out and About With Your Baby http://amzn.to/1QjwlO1 This thing is pretty nifty. Now, I know, you may be saying "but, my kids are big, I don't have a stroller. I don't need a stroller gadget!" Well, I felt the same way until I realized that this nifty little thing works great to hang on the back of the seat in the car. The kids or adults can then put their drinks in it as well as other items in the other pockets. It keeps it all neat and handy right there! And, the cup holders keep the drinks cold! Well, a little bit anyway, better than just having them out. And, if you want, you can also hang this on the back of a stroller. I received this for free for review purposes. This is my honest experience with this product.

Dot&Dot - 3oz Travel Bottles - Refillable Cosmetic Containers and Organizers


http://amzn.to/1QjvXyT I like to use this refillable/reusable container for my home made toothpaste. It makes it easier to than putting it into a little jar. The container is pretty easy to fill, the opening is nice and wide. I have only had a small problem with anything leaking out of the container, and that I think was due to me not putting the top on very well. For the most part, everything is nicely contained. I received this at a discount for review purposes.

PaleoCrazy Organic Matcha Powder Japanese Tea for Energy, Focus and Weight Loss (Misc.) I've tried many different match powders in the past few months. This is a culinary grade, so it is a bit bitter to just drink as a tea. I generally like to mix the ceremonial matcha with milk and a bit of sweetener. I tried that with this matcha, and it is a bit too bitter. However, it is pretty good when put into a smoothie. Mathca will help give you energy without the jitters common with caffeine. I received this at a discount. This is my honest and unbiased review.

Sili Bake Pastry Mat


I was excited to receive this mat. And, it worked great the first time I used it. It is lightweight and thin, so it rolls up nicely for storage. I made pizza dough on it, and it did not stick. However, after I wiped it off, I noticed that the edges are not sealed. There are little pieces of fibre (plastic or fiberglass?) coming off of the mat. I tried to see if I could just pull it off, but when I did that, it seemed to start things unraveling and more fibres came off. I am not comfortable using this for food, because I would not want those fibres to be ingested by my family. I received this at a discount. This is my honest and unbiased review.

Crossfit Jump Rope-Fast Speed,Adjustable Length-Best for Training Boxing, MMA ,RX,WOD's - Includes Free Sport Towel ,Ebook,handy bag,Extra Cable & Extra Screws -100% Lifetime Guarantee By Shvoongsport (Misc.) http://amzn.to/20m2WpJ This jump rope was ok. I like that it comes with an extra "rope". It also comes with a little towel and a bag to put everything in. It is really easy to adjust the length, and once adjusted, it stays that way. I've had others that slip around while you are jumping. There are a few things I wasn't crazy about however I found the handles to be too skinny and there is not grip to them, so they are not very comfortable to hold. When I was jumping, my rope kept twisting. I've only used it a few times, so perhaps this problem will sort itself out wit further use. I prefer a heavier jumprope, but this was lightweight, as advertised. . I received this at a discount. This is my honest and unbiased review.
